AUTHOR Russ Ceccola

I have had a strong love for entertainment since I was old enough to play pinball machines and go to the movies. I have been writing professionally since 1986 when I branched out from my position as Entertainment Editor of The Villanovan to write about computer games and video games for lots of different magazines like Commodore Magazine, GAMES and Electronic Games. Rich and I started an online magazine about games called Escapade in 1998, so it's only fitting that we join up once again to write about our other love - movies - as well as games, politics, music, theater and anything else that moves us. Heck, it feels like I'm back to being an Entertainment Editor again.

Movies Halloween Ends Movie Shot

Halloween Ends disappoints on many levels with its boring pace and questionable approach as the equivalent of that house on October 31 that gives out healthy snacks instead of full-size candy bars.

Movies Elvis Movie Shot

Elvis collapses under the weight of its director’s ambitions and style instead of letting its standout lead re-create more key moments in the icon’s life.

Movies Firestarter Movie Shot

Firestarter feels modern and gritty in its approach and still provides the same thrills that you would expect from one of Stephen King’s creations.

Movies Memory Movie Shot

Memory stands out from the other Liam Neeson action movies because it finally addresses how age affects even the deadliest among us.
